    Hi all,

    I've written a serverside Javascript application which has a page that needs to be called every 5 minutes to upate some info. I would like to use the agent in Netscape Enterprise server, but they removed this feature in version 4, which we are going to use in launch fase.

    Normally I would write a small Perl script to be called with cron, but my employer doesn't want to support Perl . Now I've heard that you can request a url with cron directly somehow, but I don't know how. Can anybody help me?

    Thanks Bas.

    Hi Shiju,

    I already have a script that does exactly this, but I'm not allowed to use it in the production environment, because they don't allow Perl to be used on the live systems. That's why I want to use that crontab. Thanks for your reply anyway.

    Shiju,

    That was what I needed, thanks. For now I'll be using the lynx -dump url job.
